There is still a little time to say goodbye to a longstanding local landmark, Shore Memorial Hospital. Its demolition has been set in motion and should be completed sometime next year. The hospital has been an integral part of this community since 1970.
Over the years, Shore Memorial has weathered numerous challenges, but it was finally decommissioned when the new facility in Onley came online.
Local residents have fond memories. It’s where many were born, where loved ones were cared for, and where the dedicated medical staff made a difference in the lives of countless individuals. The hospital’s corridors and rooms still hold stories of hope, healing, and compassion.
The decision to demolish had much to do with the aging infrastructure and the need for modern healthcare facilities. Hospital officials concluded that building a new, state-of-the-art healthcare facility would better serve the entire community’s evolving healthcare needs.
Plans for the site are still in process at this time.
